Pilbara zinc mine project

Report summary

Located in the Pilbara mineral field of Western Australia, seven massive sulphide occurrences have been identified to date, of which the largest is Sulphur Springs.  The Sulphur Springs project has now been incorporated into the larger Pilbara VMS project.  The Pilbara VMS Bankable Feasibility Study being undertaken by Venturex has identified an optimal scenario in which an underground at Sulphur Springs and two open cuts at Whim Creek, site of a closed SxEw Cu operation, supply ore to a 1.3...

    • Summary
    • Located in the Pilbara mineral field of Western Australia, seven massive sulphide occurrences have been identified to date, of which the largest is Sulphur Springs. The Sulphur Springs project has now been incorporated into the larger Pilbara VMS project. The Value Engineering Study completed in 2016 considers production of copper in concentrate from the Sulphur Springs and Kangaroo Caves deposits. In addition, the latest mine plan includes production of 40 kt of copper from processing supergene ore during the early years of operations. This ore was previously excluded from analysis as it was assumed it would be processed by the existing Whim Creek SxEw plant.
    • Key issues
    • The most recent published mine plan outlines processing of ore from the Sulphur Springs open pit and underground ore from both Sulphur Springs and Kangaroo Caves. In this model we consider processing of sulphide ore at a proposed flotation plant, with recent changes in the mine plan including processing of open pit supergene ore by flotation during the initial years of operation.
